Bloom Tender Discussion
3 days ago
Bloom Tender is a good way to accelerate with the borderposts. Colorless ramp is actually okay as well, even with all the multicolor spells as it helps you get Ramos out sooner. I would recommend at least a Sol Ring if budget is a concern.

Bloom Tender is nice but I usually see diminishing returns on it (considering the dollar value) since I play so much mono or dual color... however, if you like running 3 & up I can see how its pretty darn good.... & it is only 2 cmc

Hello friend! I have been playin animar for some time now and i have quite the competitive deck. So my suggestions are going to be aimed at high tier cards for animar and not just changing your deck to be as competative as possible. Some very strong creatures for animar that i love and are not in your list include: Maelstrom Wanderer, Palinchron, Great Whale, any big eldrazi, Bloom Tender, Conduit of Ruin, Mulldrifter, Sakura-Tribe Elder and Wood Elves. There are more but we can start with those.
Also some very strong artifacts that should be considered are: Birthing Pod 100% sac and search with creatures with etb triggers that youve already used, Cloudstone Curio to get more etb triggers, also it can help go infinite very easily when paired with any 2 colorless creatures (i.e eldrazi) Ooorrrr it goes infinite with 2 morph creatures too since playing them face down only takes colorless. Altar of the Brood can be a win con basically alone and is pairs well with Ancestral Statue!
Sorry for the length of this!!!

Hey I hope you're still working on this! You commented on my deck and it took me a bit to get back as well. I know I +1'd a long ass time ago lol
Since you are going all creatures: you need to find ones that fulfil roles of noncreature spells.
Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Coiling Oracle, maybe Ondu Giant. You have Solemn Simulacrum and Birds of Paradise which are fantastic. There's really expensive ramp too, like Bloom Tender and Lotus Cobra
I could not agree more with hintseeker's first point about drawing cards and utilizing colorless creatures. That's the meat n potatoes of the deck
I like Shaman of the Great Hunt; but not everybody does! It can chug along and turns all your creatures into pseudo-vampires. What's not to like? Thrasios, Triton Hero has a similar draw ability. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is rad. Prime Speaker Zegana can be huge. Vizier of the Menagerie is a cool new card. Elvish Visionary and Wall of Blossoms just went back into my deck. I don't run Sages of the Anima since I'm running noncreature spells I want to draw, but it would be great in here once you've decided you've played enough lands. Filter them out for multiple creatures per draw. Oracle of Mul Daya is a thing too, and Magus of the Future
To put Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron into perspective; imagine the payoff of untapping all your lands after casting multiple creature spells and just keep going. Now bounce one of them with Shrieking Drake/Dream Stalker/Man-o'-War, cast again, keep going. With enough +1/+1 counters on animar: Temur Sabertooth can bounce them for infinite mana and infinite animar counters (Cloud of Faeries needs lands like Izzet Boilerworks/Gruul Turf/Simic Growth Chamber). Deadeye Navigator can also gain infinite mana via "Flicker" effect. Lastly, Tidespout Tyrant bouncing any two colorless and/or land-untapping creatures you control goes infinite. Whether it's eldrazi or morph doesn't matter. Ancestral Statue alone bounces itself into an infinite animar
Obviously I've given way too many suggestions. Choose what works for you and your budget. Also every playgroup/meta is different.
Cards I would take out: Ancient Silverback, Enclave Elite, Frontier Guide, Hanweir Lancer, AEther Membrane, Primal Clay, Young Wolf, etc. Instead of running something like Grazing Gladehart; invest in a Purphoros, God of the Forge mwahahaha
Above all, have fun! Cheers!

I used to have a Mayael deck, and I love the Wurm Tribal concept. I've got some suggestions for you, these will be just some of the stuff I'm thinking of, if you want more suggestions, just ask.
Illusionist's Bracers pretty much speaks for itself. Doubling up on Mayael's ability makes her twice as good.
Scroll Rack is not only an amazing card in general, but also can be used to put a power 5+ creature in your hand on top of your library while throwing away any unwanted cards permanently with Mayael's ability.
BONUS: While Mayael's Aria isn't technically synergistic with your commander, it's a serious flavor-win and works super well in one of these decks.
Bloom Tender is particularly strong with a 3color/3mana commander, puts you at 6 mana on turn 3, and then you can start activating Mayael starting on turn 4.
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds ramps pretty damn well but can also double as draw condition. The symmetricality of her draw ability is usually a non-issue in a deck with this many huge creatures.
Mimic Vat makes sure you will never be without a creature to play for as long as it stays around. It's especially fun to do to your opponents' creatures.
Colfenor's Urn is about as obscure as playable cards get. If you wrath with this out, you'll get all your stuff back at the end of turn.

A few of my favorites:

Lotus Petal, Mox Opal and Chrome Mox are missing...and what I'm missing as well are all the important 1 drop mana elves, such as Arbor Elf, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, Boreal Druid and for two mana Bloom Tender. Carpet of Flowers is also a great card, even produces mana in the 2nd main phase on the same turn it has been played!
